Here it is folks – the last game of the season for Northland Nightmares – a mixed game of players from our league and across NZ plus the added bonus of seeing our littlest terrors The Hell Razors (plus invited guests) take to the track.  All proceeds of this bout will go to Rape Crisis Whangarei, we will also be collecting on the night for this brilliant cause close to our hearts, we believe in empowering women to overcome all obstacles and Rape Crisis do an amazing job of helping those in the direst of needs.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our fans for supporting us this year – there have been some big changes in the league and we are humbled by your continued faith in us, we also couldn’t do it without help from Dominos Pizza, ASB Stadium, Fast Signz, Wards Music, Steve Jennens Engineering, Fizeo Works, Oxford Trust, Pub Charity, Jesse Rose, Stil Vodka plus all our helpers, friends and family.

Look for us out and about in Whangarei during the summer months, we will be doing a number of outdoor displays and parades including the Whangarei City parade on 1st November.

A WIN for Northland’s Hells Wives!!!

On a bitterly cold winters night Rotorua’s Motley Crew from the Sulphur City Steam Rollers league felt the lick of flame from the Northland Nightmares A team – Hells Wives.

Final Score Hells Wives 228 Motley Crew 96.


No-one quite knew what to expect from the little known Motley Crew, we knew they had been training hard despite not much bout time and we knew they are the best dressed roller derby team in NZ at the moment, we found out their training has worked and with a few more bouts under their belts they will be a force to be reckoned with.

The first half started hard and fast, Motley Crew gave it their all and came out fighting tough, at one point in the first half there were only 20 points in it but Hells Wives kept up with their strategy, kept it tight and ground Motley Crew down.

The second half showed that bout experience counts,  but the heart that Motley Crew put into their playing was exceptional, stand out players for them were Razil Dazzle, Princess Die and Brave Heartless but the whole team put so much into it its hard to pick out individuals. Hells Wives put together a strong pack with agile jammers such as Skatan, Tan Ya Hyde and Silence but then brought out double threats Hailstorm and Grenade to smash thru walls as jammers and hit hard as blockers, Glamerzon once again showed off her amazing abilities and got MVP.

Next up is Northland Nightmares Hells Wives vs Pirate City Rollers (Auckland) Broadside Brawlers on 27th Sept. SEE YOU THERE!

Winter Wonder Slam!


Hells Wives 139, Dangerous Curves 87? Hells yeah!

Hells Wives took on Dangerous Curves last Saturday night in front of a packed stand at ASB Stadium, and the girlz did not disappoint their home fans! It was a strongly fought bout with some very solid walls on both sides, but Hells Wives had the edge with a bigger bench and some fine jamming by Silence, Axl Slash-R and Tan-ya Hyde, and the points soon racked up!

The comments from our crowd was that it was a great game to watch – we’re really noticing that roller derby is starting to attract a growing fanbase here in Whangarei!

Many thanks to Mount Milita Derby Crew for making the trip up, and as always a huge thank you to our refs, NSO’s, volunteers, family, friends and fans 😀

Season 2013 begins!

Saturday 4th of May kicked off Northland Nightmares Roller Girlz 2013 season and it was an action-packed evening all the way!

First up Northland Nightmares Derby Bratz held a demo game, with Team Yellow taking the game over Team Purple 97 points to 53. The Bratz had an awesome bout and they certainly showed some pretty damn fine derby skills out there!

Then May Mayhem ruled as the advanced players took the track. By half time Team Blood had a substantial lead, but Team Bruise pulled it back in the second half, and after a nail-biting final jam the final score as 162-160!

It was a hard fought, exhausting game with both teams playing with three blockers which opened up the game and made it a lot faster and easier for the jammers to break through…maybe Roller Derby needs to consider this as an option in future…?

A great opening bout and as always we couldn’t have done it without our amazing refs, NSO’s, volunteers, fans, friends and family – you are the bomb!
